  • BARACK OBAMA to Justice Samuel Alito: "STFU"

>> President Obama's first State of the Union address last night urged Congress to work together despite special interests and to invest in the American people. If rhetoric and good looks were dollars and cents, we wouldn't be in a mountain of debt right now. (CNN)

>> In last night's address, Obama said, "the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests - including foreign corporations - to spend without limit in our elections" to which Bush-appointed Justice Samuel Alito mouth "Not true." Obama mouthed back "STFU." (New York Daily News)

>> The Obama administration today delivered $8 billion on an ambitious high-speed rail development plan to boost regional economies and provide transportation alternatives. Georgia better be included because it will be a sad day when Tampa beats Atlanta in development. (Reuters)

>> Following the London conference, Afghan President Hamid Karzai plans to convene with Taliban leaders in an offer for them to renounce violence and join society. Or they can just integrate unsuspectingly into everyday life until they turn on you! (the Daily Telegraph)

>> And finally: Fox News' White House correspondent Major Garrett accidentally tweeted the link to a Las Vegas call-girl website instead of last night's State of the Union transcript to nearly 13,000 of his followers. Garrett blames it on bit.ly, bit.ly blames it on the call-girl's undeniable charm. (Gawker)
